DAY 3: Gel Pen Coloring Secret
I remember the day I discovered this exciting new way to color with gel pens–I was so excited to share it with all of you! This gel pen coloring technique is so much fun and gets the most amazing results. I can’t wait for you to learn about it and then give it a try! Gel pens are already one of my favorite coloring tools–this gel pen trick makes it even easier to get incredible blends with any gel pen, cheap or expensive, such as: Sakura Gelly Roll, GelWriter, Super Doodle, Castle Art Supplies, Promarx, ColorIt and more!
DAY 4: The Key to Watercolor Brush Pens
Have you struggled to get great coloring results with your watercolor brush pens? Well I have. The problem is that the companies selling these beautiful coloring tools demonstrate them on watercolor paper, not regular paper or card stock like you and I use, or that are found in every day coloring books. Water-based media doesn’t play well with regular coloring paper, so you get harsh lines and bad blends. But, if you use the watercolor brush pen tip I show in this video you will find that you CAN get beautiful blends on regular paper! This tip applies to ALL water-based coloring tools including: Tombow Dual-Tip Brush Pens, Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers, Caran d’Ache NeoColor ii Crayons, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Arteza and ColorIt Watercolor Brush Pens and more!

Do you ever sit down to a coloring page, with a big pile of markers, gel pens or colored pencils, and just don’t know what colors to start with? It’s a common problem we all experience–knowing how to pick colors for your coloring book or coloring page. Well I have been using an amazing free online tool that will help you pick colors fast and easy! This tool is so much fun to play around with and all but guarantees you will get perfect color harmonies!
